Nigeria Police Force (NPF) has said it has not commenced the 2022 constable recruitment. This is contrary to the position of the Police Service Commission (PSC).
In a Daily Sun Newspaper publication on August 11, 2022, the PSC announced that the 2022 Police Constable recruitment is open for interested Nigerians to apply.
However, the Force Public Relations Officer, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, in a statement forwarded to The Trumpet on Monday night, said the NPF is not currently recruiting.
Adejobi urged Nigerians to disregard the said publication by the PSC while adding that the advert by the PSC has no connection with the NPF and is not also in tandem with the police recruitment process.
The police spokesperson further disassociated the NPF from the website provided by the PSC, saying the official recruitment will be announced on the usual e-recruitment portal – https://policerecruitment.gov.ng.
Adejobi said, “The Nigeria Police Force wishes to inform well-meaning members of the public that it has not commenced the 2022 Police Constables recruitment into the Nigeria Police Force contrary to a publication on Page 21 of Daily Sun Newspaper of Thursday August 11, 2022 by the Police Service Commission (PSC).
“The Police similarly states unequivocally that the advert has no connection with the Nigeria Police Force nor is it in tandem with the Police recruitment process, and should be disregarded in all its entirety. The website to which the publication refers intending candidates – http://www.recruitment.psc.gov.ng – is not associated with the Nigeria Police Force.
“The Nigeria Police Force hereby calls on all stakeholders and intending applicants to discountenance the information in both the newspaper and on the portal as the website is not the official portal for Police Constables recruitment.
“The Nigeria Police Force thereby assures well-meaning Nigerians that the commencement of the 2022 recruitment exercise will be announced via the official police e-recruitment website – https://policerecruitment.gov.ng, the Nigeria Police Force official website – https://www.npf.gov.ng, and advertisements on national dailies and official police social media accounts as and when due.”
